Course

Runners will follow a 2 mile course through fire roads, open marsh and a single track trail through the woods.  Being in the Lowcountry, expect minimal elevation gains (if any). The forest section of the course has roots so be careful when running during the dark.  The course will be marked with red blazes on trees and red surveyor flags on the ground.

One thing is for certain as you run through the Dairy Farm is that you will experience the natural magic of the place.  It is a beautiful place teeming with wildlife, huge beautiful moss draped live oaks, magestic marshes and relics of a bygone era when the dairy was a functional farm.

Today, the Roberd’s Dairy Farm is one of the largest tracts of undeveloped green space in the Savannah/Thunderbolt proper.  The Dairy houses therapy horses for disabled people to experience the love of animals in nature.

The wildlife that call the Dairy Farm home are grey and red foxes, box turtles, snapping turtles, mud turtles, armadillos, marsh rabbits, opossums, raccoons, alligators, wood storks, barn owls, fiddler crabs by the millions, red tail hawks, bald eagles and, MOSQUITOES…
